The Art Museum of West Virginia University on the Evansdale Campus was designed to house the university’s art collection, which includes over 3,000 objects from Africa and Asia, as well as art from West Virginia, the region, and the United States. The building is situated along the main vehicular thoroughfare in front of the campus and next to a historic building, designed by the late American architect, Michael Graves, which formerly housed the alumni center and was renovated in 2009-2010 to serve as the Museum Education Center (MEC).
